Denver agrees to deal with Isaiah Thomas

Thomas had been lingering on the free agent market with few known suitors since his contract expired with the Los Angeles Lakers.

Isaiah Thomas has reportedly agreed to a one-year deal with the Nuggets. "I think he respected that and admired that, because I wanted him to be the best Isaiah Thomas".

He enjoyed a massive breakout the previous season with the Celtics, scoring 28.9 points per game and finishing fifth in MVP voting, helping Boston reach the Eastern Conference Finals. He suited up in 17 games for the Lakers before hip surgery ended a season in which he shot just 37.3 percent from the field. He was then dealt to the Lakers, where he averaged 15.6 points in 17 games.

At the 2017-18 National Basketball Association trade deadline, the Los Angeles Lakers traded Jordan Clarkson and Larry Nance Jr.to the Cleveland Cavaliers for Isaiah Thomas, Channing Frye, and a 2018 first round draft pick.

Only one person, the digital entrepreneur and philanthropist Baroness Martha Lane-Fox, has publicly refused the invitation. Prime Minister Theresa May will host Mr Trump and his wife Melania at a dinner at Blenheim Palace this evening.

ESPN first reported Thomas's signing.

But it was in Cleveland that Thomas proved to be a horrendous fit with LeBron James.

Thomas, the 60th and last pick of the 2011 NBA Draft, made a name for himself as a clutch scorer with the Celtics after his previous two teams (Sacramento and Phoenix) parted ways with him. According to ESPN, Thomas will come off the bench - a role in which he thrived in Boston.

Just 12 months ago, Isaiah Thomas was on a high after coming off his best season in the National Basketball Association with the Boston Celtics where he was an MVP candidate.
